  • Gigantic museum with the best of Cuban art. I mostly enjoy the retrospectives of contemporary Cuban artists. Must do while in Havana.
  • Excellent collection
  • You should be proud of this museum. Most of the countries in Latin America have no cultural life at all. Great Work.
  • Half of the 3rd floor is pretty boring but the other half, as well as most of the 2nd floor, has some great works.
  • The modern section is located directly behind the Museum of the revolution, in a beautiful building from the 50 's of the last century. Interesting collection of Cuban artists between XIX and XX century
